Default Modified Ranch Dressing Mix

Most ranch dressing mix recipes include powdered buttermilk and sugar.
I'm wondering if this modified list, put in a shaker bottle, would work for Atkins/LC.

3 Tbs dried Parsley
1 Tbs granulated Garlic
2 tsp granulated Onion
2 tsp dried Dill weed
1 tsp dried Onion Flakes
1 tsp dried Chives
1 tsp kosher salt
tsp ground black pepper

Maybe even put some (sans the parsley, salt & pepper) in oil and let it infuse....

Sounds good to me! I don't know what the original proportion of sugar would have been, but if it needs a bit of sweetening to achieve the right flavor, you could use a drop or two of a splenda type liquid sweetener. I buy one for my cole slaw dressing (because I like sweet dressing). The liquid splenda (unlike the powdered ones) has no carbs, and to me it tastes as good as sugar would taste. As for the buttermilk, I'm not sure about that. You could add a bit of greek yogurt perhaps.

No reason why it shouldn't work; it's better than the cheap dressings and dips with questionable ingredients. That recipe looks similar to the Diet Doctor one that I use. I like that I can just make one or two servings here and there.

Their dip recipe uses sour cream and mayo, and their vinaigrette uses oil and vinegar. Lots of room for variation depending on your tastes.

I sometimes make my own using this recipe, Probiotic Ranch Dressing. I make my own L reuteri yoghurt, but obviously you can use any of their other suggestions.
